Succession creator hopes to start filming by late 2020

Shooting was initially scheduled for this April.

Succession creator Jesse Armstrong has said he’s hoping to begin filming its third season by Christmas 2020. 

Speaking in an interview with Variety, he did stress however that this isn’t set in stone describing it as “just conversations” which are liable to change depending on the current situation with COVID-19.

“Who knows if that’ll come about, but that’s the plan at the moment,” he said.

The third season of the acclaimed dark comedy was originally supposed to start shooting this April for release in the Autumn. 

HBO put its production on hold back in March, along with its equally celebrated dark-comedy Barry, due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Its writing team have still been working on new episodes during this down period but Armstrong didn’t reveal whether or not their original plans for the season have changed. 

Succession explores the power struggles and relationships between the ultra-wealthy Roy family as they battle for control of aging media magnate Logan’s (Brian Cox) vast empire. 

Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Kieran Culkin, Alan Ruck, Matthew Macfadyen, Nicholas Braun and J-Smith Cameron also star. 

There is currently no release date for Succession season 3 but both seasons 1 and 2 seasons are available to stream on NOW TV.
